... just like taking a warm shower. Each night several bars etc. had different events for different costumes such as "Pink Bras @ Claws" (fresh crab) with proceeds to go to the American Cancer Society, Wharfstock at the Schooner Wharf Bar, Sloppy Joe’s 31st Annual Toga Party, 3rd Annual Luv2Glow Party to name a few. Friday night was a street fair and a masquerade march where participants dressed up and paraded through Old Town. Saturday night was a promenade and ...

We put our headsets on, rode through the saw grass, passing wild gators, turtles and birds. We did a few 360 degree turns and splashed water/mud around. The scenery was breathtaking.
Then we went to the gator feeding. Apparently these suckers can go 6 ...
